SMOKING – NICOTINE FOR PILATES

Nicotine is a very addictive drug.

After entering the lungs, the nicotine enters the bloodstream and stimulates the adrenal glands. This causes an increased heartbeat, constriction of the arteries and an increased conversion of glycogen, from the liver, thereby providing an energy burst. Nicotine also relaxes the muscles of the bronchi and lungs, causing ‘lazy lungs’. The smoke and other chemicals in the cigarette damage lung tissues and arteries. Smokers may develop emphysema, heart problems, circulatory problems, poor eyesight, nervous disorders, recurrent colds, excess mucus, irritability, exhaustion and nervousness.

The average cigarette smoke contains at least 12 harmful compounds, including those such as carbon monoxide, cyanide and potassium nitrate. Nicotine can remain in the body and mind for many months, even years after a person has quit. There are many nicotine alternatives and they can be very helpful during the time of ‘quitting’. A cleansing diet of fresh fruit and vegetable juices will promote the release of nicotine from the body and reduce the urge for nicotine.

Smoking is a habit you wish you never took up. It takes over your life, and quitting is so tough it’s not worth all that smoke and puff!
